    Feminism for the using material question.. and for the examine one, either domestic division of labour (but not too sure) OR domestic violence... but to be on the safe side i would say revise all just incase you dont want to risk failing.. I havent started revising at all.. Im just going to do essays and learn from them.. Havent got time to be learning from a textbook lol.

    My predictions (for the old spec)
    UNIT1:
    Domestic violence or division of labour
    feminist perspective on the family or functionalist perspective on the family
    Demography
    UNIT2:
    Gender differences in educational achievement
    Social class differences
    Yuck demography

    Please dont come up

    Is it true that before a exam board change their specifications, they must cover have covered the WHOLE current specification?
    Basically, would this mean that anything that is in the current (not new) specification that has not come up previously, must do so this final year?

    A classmate said he'd heard it from somewhere and my teacher said it is a possibility.

    Would I be stupid to not revise policies for education in as much detail this year because it came up as the big marker last year?

    I'm doing the old spec, resitting unit 2

    I was planning to do that but now im thinking
    1. The spec changed and they added privatisation to policy so it could be a new question on that
    3. Might come up as a 10 mark
    2. It's AQA so ANYTHING could happen... :teehee:

    With sociologists for me personally its just repetition unfortunately..

    The formula I use is the Two For, Two Against one (whilst also referring to the extract given constantly for quotes or you will lose marks):

    Intro -
    Basically, re-word the extract. ALWAYS use quotes from the extract in your intro to make life easier.
    State your for and against points in brief:
    E.g. Some sociologists argue that the role of education is to contribute to societal consensus....however others (e.g. Marxists/New Right/Feminists) see education as more complex

    Para 1 -
    Some functionalists argue that education is for:
    Role Allocation
    or
    Specialist Skills
    or
    Meritocracy
    Elaborate. Use a study
    e.g. Durkeim believes education helps to equip students with specialist skills

    I then evaluate straight away through commenting on:
    Date - when was it conducted. Is it outdated?
    Can the study be generalised to now?
    Is it deterministic
    Does it ignore class factors/gender/ethnicity factors.

    Then repeat this with the same functionalist ideology for another paragraph.

    Your against points need to be a different perspective:
    Marxist
    Feminist
    New Right
    and you use the same paragraph formula as before.

    Conclusion -
    Which one is the one that is most important? Functionalist views or Marxist or Feminist? Why? More up-to-date? Less deterministic?

    Thats it!

    Ah we must be on two different specs? I'm on the new one where a whole two pages of privatisation has been added to the end of educational policy...
